Unlike other dermal fillers, Radiesse has been known to last 1 – 2 years. The formula can soften your skin and restore volume without the time and expense of invasive surgery. Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Sean Kelishadi is thrilled to offer Radiesse to help you achieve the look you desire.
"Dr. Kelishadi is amazing!!! He made me feel so comfortable! I had Breast Augmentation May 26th. I'm three months out and loving my results! I was very self conscious about my chest. My breasts shrunk due to breast feeding. I didn't even want to change in front of my husband. (he loved them no matter what lol) and now I am feeling so great about it! He said he's even noticed a boost in my confidence level. I love it! i feel good..i feel sexy. I never thought I would actually go through with getting this done, but Dr. Kelishadi and his staff helped me with every step of the way. He was very caring and checked up on me after surgery. His staff was very nice as well. All so helpful! I highly recommend him!"- J.V. / Yelp / Jul 27, 2017
"I can't say enough good stuff about Jolene. In fact, I followed her to SSK from her previous job. She's incredibly skilled and always works with me to achieve the perfect natural results I want. I really feel like she listens to what I want, and she makes sure I'm 100% happy before I leave the office. She is so sweet, while exuding a confidence and professionalism that puts me at ease. She's also incredibly generous with her time, and gives excellent follow-up care and advice via text. I'm grateful I found her!"- Z.W. / Yelp / Mar 20, 2020

"SSK Plastic surgery is the best plastic surgeons office in OC. Their entire staff is amazing and is very responsive. Jolene is their injector there and is amazing. I have gotten Botox, filler, and a few laser treatments from her and she is amazing. She always preps you on what exactly to expect, how it will feel, the results and she always follows up with you every day after. At SSK they really put their patients health and concerns first! Dr. K always comes in before the procedure and lets you know what to expect and sort of walks you through the process to ensure you know you are in good hands. He has some of the most talented people working at SSK! Jolene is also the sweetest person ever and will make you feel comfortable throughout the entire process :)"- S.C. / Yelp / Mar 19, 2020
"Dr. Kelishadi is hands down the best plastic surgeon in Orange County. He and his team made me feel comfortable and always taken care of. Shea and Alejandra answered any and all questions I had prior to my consultation. The team of anesthesiologists were world class and put my mind at ease prior to surgery. Dr. Kelishadi treated me like I was his only patient and was constantly checking in with myself and my husband post op and ready to answer any questions I've had since. If you have any desire to have any cosmetic procedures done, I encourage you to go see the very best and that is Dr. Sean Kelishadi. In addition to having my breasts augmentation at SSK, I have also been lucky enough to become a patient of nurse Jolene Retaskie. I reached out to her with some questions regarding Botox. She answered all of my questions and also provided me get resources to get discounts and coupons which was amazing!! She was so gentle and explained each step as I got my first dose of Botox. After she followed up with me and since then she checks in and always she's any specials or contests with me. As a busy working mom it's so nice to have a safe place to have "work" done. I highly recommend Jolene for all your injections needs!"- L.S. / Yelp / Mar 19, 2020
Men and women who have good health and skin tone are great candidates for this cosmetic injectable. You should not have Radiesse injections if you are allergic to lidocaine, or any of the other ingredients in the product. Make sure to tell us about any allergies (severe or not), or if you have a history of any bleeding disorder. If you are a woman and are breast feeding, pregnant, may be pregnant, or are considering pregnancy within 1 – 2 years, you should not use Radiesse. The best candidates for this procedure have deep lines that reside within the smile lines, marionette lines, the corners of the mouth, the sides of the chin, and/or chin wrinkles.
Radiesse injections take place within our office. The process is very simple. We will prep your face, mark your injection spots, administer the product, and have you on your way. First, you will be seated comfortably in our treatment room and the areas of injection will be cleansed and marked. A numbing agent will be applied and left to sit for a few minutes so that the injections are not uncomfortable. The dosage of Radiesse, selected at your personalized treatment planning session, will be prepared in an ultra-fine syringe. We will mark your face with a washable marker for precision before injecting the medication. After the injections are complete, we will apply a cold compress to help alleviate swelling or bruising.
What to Expect
You may see some slight swelling, redness, and possible bruising after your injections. This is common and should only last for about 5 – 10 days. In most cases, if bruising does linger longer, it can be concealed with makeup. If the side effects last longer, or seem excessive, please do not hesitate to call our office, especially if it lasts longer than 10 days. The great thing about this injectable, is that within a few minutes, you will see results in your facial appearance that appear younger, softer, and provide a natural glow. Radiesse tends to last longer than some of the other fillers on the market.
This exceptional product may last 1 – 2 years, however, some patients do schedule their appointments earlier to refresh their results. Why wait to look continuously younger and gorgeous?
